We dined at Barcelona on a Monday night - and I probably will not return. My visit last year (while traveling) was great. Our return - very disappointing. We were approached after being seated for 20 minutes by a waitress. When we asked about wine pairings with certain foods, there was a really blank stare. So we ordered a few... More

We've been to Barcelona in Stamford a number of times. We've never ordered a main course, always sharing a number of tapas and some sangria. They have changed the tapas menu a bit, but everyone we ordered has always been excellent. Nice outdoor seating on a busy downtown street that is on a fenced sidewalk. Restaurant can get very loud,... More

I was there a few times this year and really enjoyed their tapas. Have tried several types of beers and wines. I recommend this place.

The service was very slow, the wine list is good : they have wine from all over the world especially Spanish wines but they are expensive. I did not really like the pig "mangalica". The place is very loud. Perfect place to have a drink but not recommended for dinner.

An ever changing menu of great yummy small plates of cheeses, pickles, and hot appetizers. The lamb chops looked awesome, the cheeses were wonderful, I was sad the short rib was off the menu this trip but heard it will return again. Extensive wine list and some nice Spanish sangria that we enjoyed.

We had a large group, some of us have food allergies and this was the perfect place! We told our waitress what our different allergies are and she was great with telling us what we can and can't eat. We decided to do the chef's selection and I have to say, it's the way to go! All the tapas they... More

Service, food, atmosphere-they had it all. I have been to the Greenwich location in the past and thought it was a little above average. Maybe they have improved, maybe it was the patio dining-who knows?? The 3 of us shared 3 tapas portions of potato tortilla, chorizo/fig and the piquillo peppers. The peppers were average, but the chorizo was perfection... More

Spanish tapas should be better than this. The Spanish tortilla (omelette) was the best thing we ordered yet I make them better myself. The albondigas were not the traditional Spanish kind I'm used to. Reminded me more of an Italian meatball with tomato sauce. The pork belly was beyond salty. Service was odd- that's the best way to put it.... More

Absolutely delicious! They changed their Happy Hour, but it is the best deal in town. $5 wine and cocktails. $2 and $3 tapas. We loved the beets and the spicy meatballs! Cannot wait to get back up to Stamford to visit Barcelona again!
